Publishing with Purpose
Equality, diversity and inclusion
We believe that people from all walks of life should be able to participate in society on a level playing field. Themes around social justice and equal opportunities run though all of our publishing lists and underpin our overall strategy.
With a focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals 5: Gender Equality and Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities, we have published research across all areas, including race and ethnicity, disabled and LGBTQ+ rights, gender equality, poverty and social exclusion, class and social mobility.
Diversity issues and managing diversity is something that we take seriously as an organisation with an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion group collaborating to improve diversity in recruitment, publishing and mental health/wellness. Find out more on our EDI Hub.
Bristol University Press and Policy Press are signed up to the UN SDG Publishers Compact. In Equality, diversity and inclusion, we aim to address the following goals:
